    Hi. Nightmare time! I was a bit pissed last night and this morning, and I’ve just checked Bluethroat song on Xenocanto, and have realised that the bird I heard on the way home from the pub was a Cetti’s Warbler. I need to get out more! Still a good record for the village though. Apologies to all. Regards, Matt Jordan.

    Hi Tracy, Thanks for the sightings, Anywhere really, just need some luck, To increase your chances you could try to typically good locations for migrants such as the West Cornwall valleys, The Lizard, Lands End. Keep an eye on the website incase any get found.
